Barbarians take late win as they beat Wales in Cardiff

first_imgWednesday Jun 8, 2011 Barbarians take late win as they beat Wales in Cardiff As was mentioned on Saturday with the Seru Rabeni big hit on Gavin Henson post, the Barbarians edged Wales 31-28 in a scrappy, yet at times entertaining, game at the Millennium Stadium.While a lot of the focus was on Henson, his performance was mixed with both good and bad. Ospreys coach Scott Johnson said afterwards that he isn’t the player he once was, but he can still make it back there with some hard work.It was another center who did prove some critics wrong though, albeit on a small scale. Former rugby league star Willie Mason, who is on his way to Toulon, showed touches of brilliance as he dwarfed opponents while getting his hands out of the tackle, with two passes in particular that led to Barbarians tries. While he looks rather out of place in the backs, it’s clear that the man is talented and given some time, should make a decent impact.The Baa-baas had led 19-14 at half time, but Wales came back to lead 28-19, before the Barbarians scored, including a brilliant late effort from Isa Nacewa, to take the result. It’s their second in two weeks, beating England last weekend at Twickenham.Not only did they score five tries to four, but it was probably a fair result considering the way the game flowed. Wales were missing a few key players and they did well to give some youngsters an opportunity, but there’s plenty of hard work ahead for them if they hope to make inroads when facing Fiji, Samoa, and South Africa in their pool at the World Cup later this year.“It was frustrating, and we are gutted, to be honest. We let it slip again, and we just cant switch off in these games,” said flanker Dan Lydiate. “No-one likes losing. We had five new caps and Stephen reaching 100. We really wanted to win for those boys its not good enough.“We are going out to the World Cup to do a job, and we cant have lapses in concentration. We need to play for 80 minutes in every game.” Time: 06:37ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

TCU Polo brings new meaning to trusting a teammate

first_imgWhere to watch Super Bowl LIII in Fort Worth Twitter Facebook Dean of Admission reflects on university’s growing recognition Junior Paige Browning at a polo game. October 1, 2017. Oak Point, Texas Alexis Guerrerohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexis-guerrero/ printTeam sports often require a lot of trust. The defense must trust the offense to make plays and the offense must trust the defense to shut down plays. In polo, that trust also extends to the horse. “Riding a horse is more than just directing them – it is a mutual partnership based on understanding and trust,”  said club president Paige Browning. Having a horse as a teammate could easily complicate things, but Browning and sophomore polo member Havey Robson said in order to be successful on a horse, trust is absolutely necessary. “Since we are constantly switching horses during competitions, often to horses we have never been on before, it is important to trust your horse and to trust your ability to hit the ball,” Browning said. Robson said most people have prior riding experience, which helps them be comfortable in the saddle so they can focus on the game rather than the horse. Polo is a contact sport played on a horse that resembles a combination of field hockey, soccer and lacrosse, said Browning, a junior kinesiology major. She added that a polo horse is very athletic and versatile since they have the endurance and speed of a racehorse, the agility of a cutting horse, and the dependability of a lesson horse. All of this makes for an exciting combination on the field.“The best word to describe it is probably adrenaline,” sophomore polo member Havey Robson said. “You are holding on using your thighs and leaning over the horse, so you could fall off at any time, but you are also in control of performing your duties as a player in the competition.” Club competition is the highest level of national intercollegiate polo, Browning said. TCU competes in the central region, which also features SMU, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Colorado State, and University of Texas at Austin.“Our coach Vaughn Miller always says, ‘polo is your passport to the world,’” Browning said. Not only does polo allow the team to travel, but Robson said it is also a nice break from her hectic college schedule.“There is a special feeling you get when you are out in the country riding a horse away from the hustle of school,” Robson said.

Men’s basketball cruises past Texas in wire-to-wire victory

first_imgReddIt “Coach has really been stressing to us that we have to find a way to get off to better starts so we feel like if we can get in the lane and attack early that it really opens things up throughout the rest of the game for us,” TCU guard Desmond Bane said. “Kouat shooting well, going inside to Vlad, we just spread the ball around with the 23 assists, only six turnovers, it was a good game offensively for us.” Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto Garrett Podell It was quite a contrast to the first matchup between these two teams when the Longhorns narrowly defeated TCU Jan. 10 in double-overtime, 99-98. The Horned Frogs led by as many as 17 points, 57-40, with three and a half minutes into the second half.“They had trouble stopping us and we seemed to answer with baskets going inside and it was inside out,” Dixon said. “I don’t think we settled. We attacked with penetration and interior touches.”TCU guard Desmond Bane drives to the rim against Texas. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto. Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Linkedin + posts Twitter Longhorn center and probable NBA lottery pick in the upcoming draft Mohamed Bamba was the lone bright spot for Texas with 23 points to go along with five rebounds and a block. TCU was able to neutralize Bamba’s presence defensively, as the first-year student finished with five fewer blocks than he did in the first matchup.“I thought our bigs went at him more,” Dixon said. “I think we passed better on penetration, and maybe we’re better on offense now than we were then.”TCU forward Vladimir Broziansky posts up against Texas center Mohamed bamba. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe Horned Frogs overcame a lack of depth Saturday against the Longhorns as only seven scholarship players suited for TCU with guard Shawn Olden’s concussion in addition to point guard Jaylen Finisher being out for the season. Dixon was unsure of Olden’s availability for TCU’s next game in two days. “The concussion thing is always interesting because the kid says he wants to play and the doctor says he can’t play,” Dixon said. “We’ve had a lot of those this year with Hamdy wanting to play against Vanderbilt, the doctor said no. Same thing here. That’s pretty normal with concussion protocol, and he’ll be complaining all day saying he’s ready to play Monday. The doctors will have a response.” Linkedin Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ TCU guard Alex Robinson drives to the hoop against Texas. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto Up NextTCU (17-8, 5-7) has a quick turnaround with its next matchup coming against the No. 19 West Virginia in Morgantown. They’ll be an angry Mountaineers squad looking to avenge its Jan. 22 defeat against TCU in Fort Worth, as well as a team looking to avoid a losing streak at home following its 88-85 loss against Oklahoma State Saturday.“I’m proud of our guys,” Dixon said. “We’ll get ready for West Virginia.”  printThe Horned Frogs jumped out to an early lead Saturday in Fort Worth against the Texas Longhorns, buoyed by TCU forwards Kouat Noi and Vladimir Brodziansky, and never relinquished its edge, winning 87-71.

Noi led all scorers at the half with 15 points, and he finished the contest with 18 points.“Coach always preaches staying ready, so whenever I get the chance I’m always going to be ready to shoot or drive and look for the open man,” Noi said. “I give the credit to my teammates for finding me throughout the game.”Kouat Noi pulls up for a three-pointer against Texas. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto. Noi will likely be a fixture in the starting lineup going forward.“He’s earned it, and we’ve always felt JD [Miller] was the better defender against the bigger guys, but we felt it was time to try it again,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “He’s going to have to play more perimeter with the rotation playing one of our wing spots. He was going to play more minutes no matter what, so it’s better to get him in at the start than sit him the first four or five minutes.” Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Dixon’s squad checked nearly every box in its wire-to-wire victory by out-rebounding the Longhorns 33-22, committing just six turnovers while Texas had 11 giveaways, and out-scoring Texas in the paint, 38-30.“The numbers speak for themselves,” Dixon said. “Defensively, still not quite there, but the main thing is that we only gave up five second-shots, and we did it with the short bench.” Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ Twitter Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

Heavy jail sentences for three bloggers after sham trial

first_img Organisation News News Help by sharing this information April 27, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the harsh and unjust jail sentences that a court imposed today on three bloggers on charges of anti-state propaganda at the end of a summary trial in southern Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh City.Nguyen Van Hai (who used the blog name of Dieu Cay) was sentenced to 12 years in prison followed by five years of house arrest. Ta Phong Tan, a female blogger, was sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by five years of house arrest. And Phan Thanh Hai (known by the blog name of Anh Ba Saigon), the only one to plead guilty, got 4 years in prison followed by three years of house arrest.”I was never against the state, I was just frustrated by injustice, corruption and dictatorship, which does not represent the state but some individuals,” Dieu Cay said. “Citizens have the right to freedom of speech,” he added before the sound being transmitted to journalists and diplomats in a neighbouring room was cut.”The authorities are trying to make a big impression and encourage self-censorship by imposing exemplary sentences,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Dieu Cay and Ta Phong Tan have been given especially severe sentences compared with similar ones imposed in recent months. “They are symptomatic of a nervousness and determination to crack down more than ever at a time of divisions within the regime and corruption cases involving senior officials including the prime minister – clearly embarrassing cases that were revealed by bloggers and citizen journalists.” Tense trial, relatives under close surveillanceReporters Without Borders is also appalled by the government’s continuing abusive treatment of the defendants’ relatives, who have been the target of harassment and reprisals for months, to the point that Ta Phong Tan’s mother committed suicide by setting herself on fire on 30 July in despair at her daughter’s prosecution.Police and security officials were deployed this morning to prevent certain people from attending the trial, especial Dieu Cay’s family. His daughter was prevented from leaving home, while his wife, Duong Thi Tan, was ordered to report to a police station at 7:30 a.m. in connection with an incident in Bac Lieu on 16 September when she, Ta Phong Tan’s sister and the Catholic priest and netcitizen Anton Le Ngoc Thanh were arrested for allegedly causing a traffic accident by protesting on the street.As Duong Thi Tan did not respond to the summons, she was seized outside the courtroom and was bundled into a public security truck along with two of Ta Phong Tan’s relatives, Ta Khoi Phung and Ta Minh Tu, and several bloggers.When Duong Thi Tan and her son, Nguyen Tri Dung, left the police station at 1:35 p.m., they were accosted by men in civilian dress – probably plain-clothes police – who grabbed and tore down the young man’s shirt. They finally managed to get to the court but police prevented them from going in.Sympathisers brandishing placards gathered outside the court in the hope of being allowed to attend the trial. They included the priest Thanh and the poet Bui Cha. The police checked the papers of several of the protesters and prevented them from approaching the court building.Troublesome bloggers and dissidents Dieu Cay and the other two bloggers tried today were convicted under article 88 of the criminal code. As they had not been brought to trial within the required period, prosecutors drew up a new indictment on 19 July but the new one was almost the same as the original one.
